1. Hide up in a tree and spy on the world
Ssshh! No-one will know you’re there! Enjoy the bird’s eye view.
2. Camp out and see a meteor shower
Can you catch sight of a falling star? August is the time of the ‘Perseid’ meteor shower. Why not camp out on a clear night and try a spot of stargazing?
3. Spot a kingfisher from a riverside path
Let a walk along the riverbank reveal a colourful new world.
4. Find your perfect picnic spot
What makes your spot picnic-perfect is up to you.
5. Go fishing for crabs
Have a crabbing competition down on the quayside at Walberswick or other spots along our Suffolk coast.
6. Put a toe in the water down at the stream
Explore how it feels to walk barefoot across a natural stream. Some Suffolk villages have a ford where the stream goes across the road.
7. Take a swim in the sea
From the shores of Lowestoft right down to Felixstowe, taste the salty sea spray. Look out for Suffolk’s top blue flag beaches too.
8. Simply lay back, look and listen
Even in the quietest meadow or smallest garden, there’s always something wild going on.
9. Watch dragonflies hunting
Can you count their wings as they rest on reeds by the water’s edge down at the river, on the marshes or by the local pond?
1O. Discover the beauty of butterflies in a meadow
Admire their different colours and wonderful wing patterns. Are there 3 different types to identify in your meadow?
